    had her work cut out for her.

    Dear teachers,

    Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

    For Lucy had her work cut out for her.

    have one's work cut out for one = to have a large and difficult task to do

    Thanks for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    Not a teacher.

    Yes, that's the meaning.
